Campaigning news from London
Back in February, TfL launched a consultation to extend the North South scheme to King's Cross and right past RNIB’s flagship office, a proposal that we're alarmed by. Find out what we've been doing to save our pelican crossing.
For the past six months we've been working with Mencap, Leonard Cheshire Disability, British Deaf Association and others to arrange a question time event for the 4 main candidates wishing to be London's Mayor.
This May, London will be electing a new mayor and London Assembly. We’re working with other disability organisations to organise a hustings event for disabled people to be able to question the candidates about issues affecting them.
Transport for London (TfL) is looking at extending their North to South cycle superhighway to Kings Cross, taking it along Judd Street and right past our offices and resource centre. Find out more about how you can let TfL know what you think of their plans.
We’ve been working with staff at Kingston Hospital, Action for Blind People and Thomas Pocklington Trust to get a sight loss adviser in place at the eye department at Kingston Hospital.
